Lors d'une poursuite automobile au début du film, un voyou se nommant lui-même l' "Aigle de la Route", se tue en tentant d'échapper à Max. Son frère, le chef d'un dangereux gang de motards, décide de le venger. La Ford Falcon XB Hardtop de Mel Gibson dans le film. Quand le coéquipier de Max, Jim Goose, se retrouve à l'hôpital, grièvement brûlé par le gang, Max prend peur et décide de quitter son poste de policier intercepteur. Au lieu de ça, il prend des vacances et part alors vers le Nord avec sa femme et son bébé, loin de la violence routière. Mais les motards parviennent à le retrouver et tuent sa femme et son bébé, Paul.
